#101 Social History, Media Ethics & Public Speaking with Jason Okundaye

Hey podulters, in this episode I speak to Jason Okundaye. Jason is a journalist and he is currently writing his first book, Revolutionary Acts : Stories of Love, Brotherhood, and Resilience from Black Gay Britain .

At the end we speak about identity politics and how our attitudes towards it and the ‘privilege’ discourse are changing, which I personally think is quite an interesting topic. Especially as this podcast has centred itself around those things for a while so it’s always refreshing and interesting when you find yourself growing out of - or growing beyond - an idea!

#100 Everything I've Learnt From The Podcast

Hey Podulters! We made it to 100 episodes, I can't quite believe it. That's over 6018 minutes (I could be wrong here, but I tried to add it up), and so so close to 4 million downloads. To celebrate this, I thought I would do a solo episode about what I've learnt doing this podcast over the past three years. It took me a few goes (APOLOGIES FOR THE DELAY), but hopefully this one sort of encapsulates just how transformative this podcast has been for me. I am sure there are a million things I have forgotten to mention, but 100 episodes is a lot! Thank you all so much for listening, thank you to all of my guests, and thank you as well to Acast, I hope you enjoy mwah xxx Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

#99 Following Your Intuition, Diverse Communities & Human Nature with Rutger Bregman

Hey Podulters! In this week’s episode I speak to Rutger Bregman, he is a historian, author and speaker. I’m sure if you listen to the  podcast regularly you will have heard me mention his book, Utopia For Realists, multiple times. Unlike pretty much anyone else I have spoken to, Rutger said he was pretty happy with everything he had learnt in school 🤣 but that’s mostly because he doesn’t really think our schools are fit for purpose as they are. We discuss following your intuition, the importance of diverse communities and why humans are actually really kind, deep down. I really enjoyed recording this episode and I hope you enjoy listening, Rutger’s latest book, Humankind, covers a lot of what we talk about in the episode!

#96 Political Philosophy, Addiction & Achievement Myths with Moya Lothian-McLean

Hey Podulters, I hope you’re well! In this week's episode I speak to the politics editor at gal-dem, Moya Lothian-McLean.

We also speak about fitness addiction, body image and dieting - so content warning for that. I hope you enjoy, as always please do rate, review and subscribe.link to NHS therapy https://www.nhs.uk/Service-Search/other-services/NHS%20psychological%20therapies%20services%20(IAPT),%20including%20cognitive%20behavioural%20therapy%20(CBT)/LocationSearch/10008 Hosted on Acast.

#95 Philosophy, Self Acceptance and Coping with Adversity with Matt Haig

Hello Podulters, It’s been a very long time no speak🥲. I’m so pleased to be back with season 10 👀of Adulting! Wow! It was the three year anniversary of the podcast the other day, and it’s so exciting to see how far we’ve come. In fact, I think today’s conversation with Matt Haig is quite reflective of that. We start to push back a little against the pervasive and negative aspects of ‘woke culture’ - for want of a better phrase - and that’s looking like a recurring theme this season. This is interesting to me, because of course Adulting as a podcast is all about becoming more knowledgeable, more understanding and less ignorant. But I do wonder if maybe we have lost sight of that goal more broadly, especially when using the term 'woke'? I’m still asking people what three things they wish they had been taught in school, and Matt’s are Philosophy, coping with adversity and self acceptance. His book, The Midnight Library, which I absolutely loved, is now out in paperback... incase you were looking for your next read. I really hope you enjoy listening and I’m so glad to be back!

#94 BONUS Pod with My Dad

We discuss the impact of food on the climate crisis, what his relationship with food was like when he was younger and the generational differences between him and I, when it comes to attitudes towards sustainability. This was so much fun to record and I think I learnt more from my dad than he did from me!

#3 'Please don't shave your vagina people' with Anita Mitra

In this episode I chat with Anita @gynaegeek, who is a gynaecologist and we discuss all things women's health from PCOS to fertility. We also try to combat lots of the taboos and misinformation that prevent us from understanding ourselves from the inside out, such as the fact that what we call a 'vagina' is actually a 'vulva'- whoda thunk it.
